The cemetery where President James Buchanan is buried was vandalized, and obscenities were spray-painted on his tombstone. The nation's 15th President, who died in 1868, is buried in Union County's Woodward Hill Cemetery, overlooking Lancaster and the Conestoga River. On Thursday, someone painted three sexually explicit slang words on his tombstone and toppled neighboring tombstones. A construction company volunteered to remove the paint on Saturday.

When 17-year-old high school senior John Burbus was arrested for spray-painting his name on a vacant building on trendy South Street, he was given a punishment to fit his crime: He was ordered to wield a paint brush. Juvenile authorities assigned Burbus to work on one of the seven brightly colored murals being painted by Philadelphia's Anti-Graffiti Network, a nonprofit, city-run program created in 1984 to clean up and stop the spread of graffiti.
